Want the TV info for the Apple Cup?

Well here it is, helpfully provided by the good folks over at FSN.
And since they are being so helpful in providing the info (sure, it’s PR for them, but what the heck) I’ll leave it to you guys to decide if this is really “the most anticipated game of the season for crimson and purple” fans as the press release suggests (though I’m wondering which is the crimson and purple team while sympathizing the tough duty of trying to make this one look good).
Anyway, here’s the release with relevant TV info on the Apple Cup and other affiliated programming:

“The countdown for Apple Cup is here and FSN will again be the exclusive home of the battle between the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars. The most anticipated game of the season for crimson and purple fans kicks off on FSN on Saturday, November 28th at 2:30 pm and if you’re not in Husky Stadium, then FSN will be your eyes and ears for the 102nd playing of the annual rivalry game.
The 2009 Apple Cup kicks-off for viewers across the Northwest live at 2:30 p.m. with a special 60-minute edition of College Football Northwest from Husky Stadium. FSN’s Brad Adam will be joined by former WSU quarterback Jason Gesser, and former UW quarterback Damon Huard, along with FSN’s Angie Mentink and Jen Mueller to bring fans exclusive interviews and key match-ups for this year’s game.
FSN’s Tom Glasgow will bring fans the play-by-play action for the 2009 Apple Cup game as it kicks off at 3:30 pm live on FSN. Glasgow will be joined by former Seahawks fullback Mack Strong, along with former WWU quarterback Jason Stiles bringing fans updates directly from the sidelines. The College Football Northwest crew will return with an “Apple Cup Wrap-up” show featuring post-game reaction from both locker rooms and exclusive interviews with players and coaches at 10:30 p.m. immediately following the UCLA/USC game. Fans can also watch a replay of the 2009 Apple Cup game on Sunday, November 29th at 10 pm and Monday, November 30th at 11 am and 7 pm.
In addition to unprecedented coverage of this year’s game, FSN will spend the entire week giving fans a chance to relive some of the greatest Apple Cup moments of the past with FSN Classics and will count down the top-10 Apple Cup games for both teams in the history of the rivalry on Northwest Top 10: Huskies Apple Cup Games and Northwest Top 10: Cougars Apple Cup Games.
FSN Classics kicks off the full week of Apple Cup programming on Sunday, November 22nd at 7 pm, with the 1996 Apple Cup as the Huskies take a big lead in Pullman, but the Cougars fight back and take the game into overtime in a heated battle at Martin Stadium. FSN Classics continues on Tuesday, November 24th at 7:30 pm, with the 1992 Apple Cup, famously known as “The Snow Bowl,” as the fifth-ranked Huskies traveled to Pullman to face Drew Bledsoe’s Cougars. A blustery snow storm and a high-scoring third quarter were the difference in this memorable game for both teams.
Apple Cup legends such as Drew Bledsoe, Warren Moon, Mike Price and Don James look back at some of the top games ever played in the series on Northwest Top 10: Huskies Apple Cup Games and Northwest Top 10: Cougars Apple Cup Games. Host Jen Mueller will countdown the top-10 Apple Cup games for each team during a 30-minute special dedicated to the Huskies and the Cougars. FSN will also give fans an “All Access” pass to both teams on Huskies All Access and Cougars All Access during the week leading up to the 2009 Apple Cup.”
